You know your blog is old when you trawl through the WordPress themes and realize your chosen design is obsolete.
2013 didn’t seem that old.
I could probably have gone on another six more years without changing a thing.
Except that the new super duper ultrawidescreen monitor now takes super duper ultrawidescreen screenshots.
And I get triggered every time I try to look at my blog with teeny weeny narrow panoramic pictures crammed into what seems like a mere 650 pixels of column width.
Hence the search for a new theme that can support much wider resolutions.
There are a -lot- of WordPress themes. Clicking through all of them is extremely depressing. Especially when you scroll allll the way down to read the summary and find out the column width is X much pixels. (Where X is a pretty small number.)
None of them quite work how I’d really like. Nor do I have the mental bandwidth to customize my own right now.
Eventually settled on this one. Mostly by prioritizing overhanging images. Which narrows down the options from 140+ free things to 5, none of them perfect.
There will be some transition pains, no doubt. Pardon the dust and all that.
But the bright side is there will be a lot more pretty pictures. Of a size that doesn’t necessitate a magnifying glass.
